Elder, Mono Ontario Prime Location
On the town of Mono’s website, the Elder Post Office is listed as a designated heritage property and is an important piece of history within the community. Serving as the local post office for the community of Elder from 1864-1914, this sturdy, one and a half storey log house was built in 1855. Since it was first built to serve as a post office, it has become a residence and has had a couple of additions to the property; one log and one frame with lovely dovetailed corners and other beautifully detailed architecture-related aspects.

History of Elder Ontario
Named for Thomas Elder, a farmer and one of the old settlers, Elder is a rural community in Ontario. Get lost in the rolling landscapes and lush forests nearby, as you are only a five minute drive to Lookout Trail in Mono Cliffs Provincial Park, where the hike to the top is well-worth the scenic views; especially in the Fall season as trees are changing colour! Those who are looking to access the popular and stunning Bruce Trail Home to Blithe Nurseries and Garden Store and around the corner from Split Rock Narrows, nature-lovers of all kinds will find tranquility in Elder, Ontario.
The Splitrock Narrows Nature Reserve was secured by the Bruce Trail Conservancy in 2012 and offers hikers steep cliffs, vast views, a glacial spillway and an impressive crevice system, which Splitrock Narrows is named after. A very interesting area for people of all ages to appreciate; 420 million year old crinoid fossils can be found along the walls of the crevice, making it one-of-a-kind.
